Whether you are a permanent or seasonal Florida resident, the Orlando Medical Marijuana Clinic can guide you through process to get a medical marijuana card in Orlando. A seasonal resident can qualify for a medical marijuana card with a qualifying condition and is defined by Florida law as someone who temporarily resides in Florida for a period of at least 31 consecutive days in each calendar year, maintains a temporary residence Florida, returns to the state or jurisdiction of his or her residence at least one time during each calendar year, and is registered to vote or pays income tax in another state or jurisdiction.
Within Florida law, it is the responsibility of the medical marijuana ordering physician to diagnose patients with a qualifying medical condition and determine if medical marijuana is an appropriate treatment. The qualifying medical conditions are: Cancer, Glaucoma, Crohn’s Disease, Epilepsy, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, HIV, AIDS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, medical conditions of the same kind or class as or comparable those listed, terminal conditions and chronic non-malignant pain caused by one of the listed qualifying medical conditions.
To get a medical marijuana card in Orlando, first, you must have been diagnosed by a healthcare provider for a qualifying condition. The Medical Marijuana Clinic’s doctors do not diagnose conditions. You must provide proof such as a simple medical record showing a diagnosis for a qualifying condition; or a letter from your healthcare provider; or mri; or x-ray; or prescribed medication for a qualifying condition. Please note, the Medical Marijuana Clinic does not accept minor patients younger than 18 years of age.
During your appointment the Orlando medical marijuana doctor will review your medical history and proof of condition and if it meets with the approval guidelines your medical marijuana certification and orders will be entered in the Medical Marijuana Users Registry, also known as, the MMUR.
The final step is to complete the application process in the MMUR and pay the state’s $75 registration fee. It takes about 10 business days to receive the approval from the state from the time you complete the application. The state sends approval emails to let you know of your approval and once approved, you can visit an Orlando area dispensary to make your purchase. The dispensaries will be able to verify your certification and orders in the registry and guide you to the best product for your condition. Just make sure you take your Florida drivers license or Florida ID with you.
The medical marijuana doctor reviews the patient’s medical history and proof of diagnosis to determine if the patient’s condition falls within Florida law for qualifying conditions and once accepted, the doctor approves the certification and medical marijuana orders which are entered into the Medical Marijuana Use Registry.
